This week we’re crushing on Kendal Thompson.
Kendal Thompson is a singer and songwriter born in Alliston, Ontario, Canada. She began singing at the age of three making up songs as she went along. Thompson began taking vocal lessons at the age of 12 and soon she was gathering fellow classmates for rehearsals of a girl group that never received a name, or made it out of the playground. From those failed attempts she learned how to persevere with her purpose in hand. In her early teens Kendal was shown a new light, being almost solely inspired by Lauryn Hill, began her journey of musical expression. She adopted a guitar her father had purchased years earlier for $10.00 at a local auction and the added musical outlet and freedom of expression took her writing to a whole new level. In 2007 Kendal took a leap and moved to Toronto where she found a home in the folk and indie circuit. Endless shows and lucille projects later she connected with producer, songwriter and musician Mike Schlosser of Little Noise Records, and the musical results have formed that basis of all her music since. Her first EP “One” is available on Apple Music and Spotify and has helped her gain the attention of other Toronto artists, and landed her a feature in John Orpheus’ song “BUTTAHFLY”. Thompson is excited to continue working with her team at Little Noise for a much anticipated follow up in 2017.

If they’re looking in my direction, then definitely the eyes, but I’m a sucker for a man with a good booty so I’ll be checking that out too.
What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?
Anything cheesy!!! I like when a man can have a good time with me doing anything, night beach walks, county fairs, skating, drive in movies etc. I love the first date cliché
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
The best piece of romance advice I’ve ever received has to be something I was once told by a happily married friend, that choosing your life partner should be the most difficult decision you ever make.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
The piece of advice I would give to other men/woman would be, if the person you’re with isn’t making you feel good about yourself, feel confident about your decisions and make you think good loving thoughts about your body. Get out.
